On the last binary day of my lifetime (11/11/11, the next one isn't until January 1st, 2100, and it is unlikely that I will be around for that long) I drove by Kalandsvannet, a lake between Bergen and Os and I noticed a heavy fog developing over the water.

The sun had not yet risen, but I knew that once it did, the light would be fantastic.
So, about an hour later - when I had finished what I originally set out to do - I drove back to the lake to await sunrise.
I spent some time moving around the lake, finding interesting spots to shoot. These are the results.
The cobweb picture was taken at 11:11.

The first picture (of the fencepost) is from Stend, and the last nine pictures are not of the lake, but of a river crossing closer to Os (I can't decide which of these I prefer). The remainder of the pictures are from around the lake.

This is my first serious attempt at landscape. I usually shoot concerts. I would very much appreciate any criticism you might have (preferably of the constructive type).

Eg elskar dei! Spesielt nr. 4, 9, 11, 20, 30 og 32. Utenom det, var det litt kjips at det var litt kvister på venstre side i det første bildet med joshua treet, og kunne sikkert vore for uten lastebilen i det siste bildet. Men det er mine tanker, då. Veldig flotte bileder, i alle fall. Veldig magisk-mystisk stemning.

In a local library in Togo, Tété-Michel Kpomassie found a children’s book about Greenland. This became the beginning of a 12 year long journey through Africa and Europe.

When discovering the book, Kpomassie was supposed to go live with a python cult for seven years. Instead, he ran away, and became the first African to reach Greenland. The journey resulted in the book An African in Greenland, awarding him the Prix Littéraire Francophone in 1981. His encounter with the Inuit people of Greenland is portrayed in great detail. Kpomassie’s curious and outgoing personality allows him a peek into the local culture. He also compares his experiences with the Inuits to the phenomena of his own country. Is it possible that an African without education can teach us more about the Inuit culture than any social anthropology study? Thomas Hylland Eriksen, Norwegian professor of Social Anthropology, wrote the introduction to the Norwegian edition. There he states the following: «The word unique is used too lenient, often about books that is just a little unusual. This book, on the other hand, is really unique. It is certainly the only book of travel on Greenland written by an African».
Kpomassie visited the Bergen Student Society, and gave a talk on his book, and also shared his latest experiences from his travels and his observation of other cultures.

After Kpomassie's talk, and a showing of an exerpt from the film, two jazz bands from The Grieg Academy entertained the audience ("Morning Has Occured" and another I can't remember the name of).

+Adam Hostetler Thanks! I was pleasantly surprised by these myself. I didn't have pit access for this concert, so shot these with an 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 from where the sound and lighting people were located.

PELbO is violent and sophisticated tubas, exploding drums and sensational vocals; loopstations, fuzz pedals and hypnotizing beats.

I re-did the pictures from the candlelight memorial for the victims of 22nd of July attacks.

The candles are placed on a tilted rectangular statue, called "Den Blå Sten" (in english: "The Blue Stone"). This stone is placed in the centre of Bergen, and is the place for meeting up with friends. A fitting place for the impromptu memorial.

More concert photos. These are a bit older, from 2010, but I've since started using lightroom instead of photoshop, so I went back and redid the post-processing.
The band is Hurra Torpedo, the world's leading kitchen appliance rock group.

Hehe, husker spesielt ein ting Schau sa før han skulle gjere noko sykt i eit eller anna show. "Nei, vi e'kke her for å leke vårs."

The problem with working and taking pictures every day is that I end up tragically short of time for editing and publishing. Need to take a break, methinks.
